Doncaster Rovers have become the first professional football club in the country to generate electricity from the sun’s rays.

The Championship club is leading the way with its green credentials by installing solar panels at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Rovers are the first Football League club to install the panels, which will be able to generate power all year round.

Gavin Baldwin, Rovers chief executive, said: “We have a number of green initiatives at the stadium in order to reduce our carbon footprint and we are delighted to be moving into the renewable energy market.

“The solar panels are not only beneficial to the environment, they will help to reduce our energy bills, which is fantastic.

“To be the first football league club in the country to install solar panels is a fantastic accolade for Rovers and indicates how innovative the club is and once again shows we are leading the way.

“We are just about to celebrate our first year of managing the Keepmoat Stadium and this latest green initiative shows how far we have come and the differences we have made.”
